The Robotic Process Automation that Power Automate uses does not require any coding skill, this is to help simplify the “busy work” by automating it. Power Automate works like any other macros on the Microsoft Office pack, by recording repetitive actions from your desktop across applications like Word, PowerPoint, Microsoft Excel, and SharePoint.
As an example, we can take the typical scenario of scaling a large weekly, monthly, quarterly, or even annual report.
Using Power Automate it is possible to automate actions of data entry across multiple sources, such as Websites, Excel files, PDFs, and more so that the report is automatically generated.
It is very easy to get started with Power Automate Desktop, the user can start by automating simple desktop flows by using the simple drag-and-drop interface that the program provides, which gives up to 400 slots to “program”, which means the user can program up to 400 variations of automated action, and it also provides a recorder that captures mouse clicks which the user can still be able to edit after the capturing process.
Using the version of Power Automate made for Windows 10, the user can extend the above-described capability to a whole new level, by using the Attended RPA plan.
By using the Attended RPA the user can automate actions across organizations and share or collaborate with other programmed flows. It is possible to access 400 built-in connectors through the Cloud Flows, identify bottlenecks in a specific business process by using the process advisor, extract specific data using the AI Builder, and use Centralize Governance to manage programmed flow control.
- A tangible Productivity Boost: it is possible to build time-saving action, from personal day-to-day tasks to large-scale duties using the prebuilt connectors.
- Quick and Secure Automation: Power Automate, as said before, is a low code, so no coding required, application. It uses only Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
- Workflows work by themselves: the Artificial Intelligence capability of Power Automate enables the programmed Workflows to work b themselves.
The number of possibilities, by using Power Automate, gets as near as infinite, due to the fact that it is possible to create automated flows in applications like Microsoft Team, Azure DevOps, Google Drive, and Microsoft. Forms.
From syncing school work to the desktop calendar, to capture prerecorded email and automating the send-button action.
Microsoft has really eased the workflow for many business users by inventing Power Automate, it is possible for a user to try it for free using the free trial of the Attended RPA version. The Desktop version of the application is completely free for people who use Windows 10.
